Osagie Obasogie Osagie K. Obasogie (B.A. Yale University, J.D. Columbia Law School, Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley) is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law with a joint appointment at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. He is also a Senior Fellow at the Center for Genetics and Society. His research interests exist along two major threads that, broadly speaking, assess the sociological and legal aspects of racial formation. First, his work attempts to bridge the conceptual and methodological gaps between empirical and doctrinal scholarship on race. This effort can be seen in his recent work examining blind people's understanding of race, which provides an empirical basis from which to rethink core assumptions embedded in lay and scholarly understandings of racial difference and discrimination. His first article from this project, Do Blind People See Race? Social, Legal, and Theoretical Considerations (Law & Society Review, 2010) won the Law & Society Association's John Hope Franklin Prize in addition to being named runner-up for the Distinguished Article Award by the Sociology of Law Section of the American Sociological Association. (A book version of this research is currently under contract with Stanford University Press.) His scholarship also looks at the past and present roles of science in both constructing racial meanings and explaining racial disparities. This research is tied to his interest in bioethics, particularly the social, ethical, and legal implications of reproductive and genetic technologies.
...
Obasogie is also an affiliated faculty member with the Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholars Program at UCSF and UC Berkeley and is on the Bioethics Advisory Panel for the Kaiser Permanente Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health. He has served as a faculty mentor for the LSA Early Career Workshop (2011) and on the review committee for the LSA/ABF/NSF Law and Social Science Dissertation and Mentoring Fellowship (2010, 2011). He teaches Constitutional Law, Bioethics, and seminars on Critical Race Theory and new reproductive and genetic technologies.
